So apparently doing something illegal is okay as long as it's not one of the items on the Security Theater checklist?
Slashdot videos: Now with more Slashdot!
We've improved Slashdot's video section; now you can view our video interviews, product close-ups and site visits with all the usual Slashdot options to comment, share, etc. No more walled garden! It's a work in progress -- we hope you'll check it out (Learn more about the recent updates).
When you take your test on the roadway, I assume you have your permit, which means you can drive as long as you have another licensed driver in the car with you (at least, where I took my drivers training)
Even with full disk encryption it's only a matter of time.
Of course it's only a matter of time, but so is the heat death of the universe, and neither that nor breaking 128 bit AES are happening any time soon. You're also implying that I can't go in and modify fastboot or recovery on my phone to prevent it from being pulled down, too.
I'm curious how difficult it would be to have an alternate ROM for Android phones just have a 'USB toggle' that blocks access to the USB module entirely (add/remove kernel module?)
Android 3 and higher supports this.
They're so fast they're already out!
Unfortunately Linode bills for the whole month and refunds you the proration, so you're still stuck with that amount as credit. If you have a full-time VM running and spin one up for a little bit this is fine, but if I really need something short-term I just use EC2 due to hourly billing.

Motorola just claimed with the new 'RAZR' that it was specifically Verizon that is causing the bootloader to be locked, on Verizon's version of the phone.
There already is a map editor, it's called Hammer. The title is misleading, it should read Portal 2 getting In-Game Map Editor.
I'm sure the engineers would like to open source Maps and whatnot too. It's management/sales/lawyers that stop that kind of stuff from happening.
It's pretty much a fact Google sees the value in it, because their (perfectly valid and legal) initial decision to tell Cyanogenmod to stop bundling Google's apps (Maps, Market, etc.) soon turned into a "you know what, just download the bundle from us and it'll be fine"
There was no 2.0 official release? What the heck did my original Droid come with then? It was API level 5, and was quickly replaced with 2.0.1 (API level 6). 2.0 came out in November 2009, 2.1 didn't come out till January 2010. 2.0 doesn't have a dessert name as far as I can tell, though.
